Schedule: Arena_utilita_a2 -15 Minutes Plr_Frostfell_a5- 30 Minutes pl_swiftwater_final_rc2- 30 minutes tc_strata_ends_a1- 20+ minutes Gameday Map Pack Here Map Submission Format • Required: Exact Map Filename (ctf_example_a4) ----Must not have capital letters in. ----Must be versioned. (cp_example no, cp_example_a1 yes) • Required: url to offsite OR onsite download. (dropbox prefered) *NOTE: You can keep the same TF2Maps.net file number by clicking edit on your file's page and then simply putting a new file in the upload box. This makes it easier for you (don't have to update all your links!), easier for me, and less clutter on the site. ----May NOT be a hosting site like mega-upload or Rapid-share (wait times, codes, excessive ads, gov't take-downs, etc). ----BZ2 compressed files are greatly appreciated to save time for the host. ----You may NOT reserve a submission without a download. You can update your download to a new version after submitting, before the submission closes. • If you need a specific time slot: Available time & your time zone. • If your submission is a single stage out of a multi-stage map, please mention this. (orphaned stage) • If you are a donator with upload abilities, please say if you have already uploaded the map. • If you have a tf2maps thread, a link to this is also useful. It makes it much easier to give feedback to you, and gives you a place to centralise information about your map. Testing options • A time extension may be requested for mature non-arena maps in need of fine tuning (this includes orphaned stages). • Everyone will get a demo of their map after the test, and a link to the event feedback page. Rules/Guidelines • The map must be playable. This means fully functional objective system, proper spawns, not fullbright, etc. __The purpose of this testing is to help authors refine their designs, not catch newbie bugs. • Map must be IN DEVELOPMENT, finished maps do not require testing. • Map may NOT use a point_servercommand to alter any variables. • Map must be designed for normal play. No melee-only, class-restricted, or otherwise gimmicky maps • Medieval Maps will be allowed under decision of gameday host. They will be given the last timeslot of the gameday. • Non-compliance with rules will result in rejection of the submission. • If an author has more than one map they want tested, they must be submitted to separate days. NOTE: Any maps that have best in the previous weeks gamedays (regardless of version/changes) will be given lowest priority of entry into the gameday schedule, or will not be part of gameday at all. Information • Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH gets 20, Arena, Orphaned stages and Medieval maps get 15 minutes. • Submissions will be limited to 3 hours of testing, give or take.
